Kolkata: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has formed a 117-member election management team ahead of the 2021 West Bengal assembly polls. It is the biggest election machinery the party has ever put in place in the state.

The team has been divided into 31 units, with each looking after a particular aspect of the party’s poll preparations during the campaign — coordination, data collection, booth management, and social media management, etc.

“While some cells comprise multiple state leaders, including MPs and MLAs, and have a party veteran in-charge and co-in charge of them, a few cells have just one state leader,” said a BJP leader.

The party is currently buoyed by its gains in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in which it got 40% of the vote share and bagged 18 out of the 42 seats in the state.

Elections to the 294-member state assembly are expected sometime around April and May.

The state machinery would be supervised under Union home minister Amit Shah and BJP chief JP Nadda. Shah and Nadda are expected to camp in West Bengal for a few days every month till the elections.

As per reports, 294 leaders will be arriving in Bengal from Delhi and other states to work with the local unit. They would be part of 45-member teams to be set up for each constituency.

It has also appointed a separate media team to appear for TV interviews.
